Women Against Rape (WAR) is a grassroots multi-racial women’s group founded in 1976.
It is based at the Crossroads Women’s Centre in London. You can find us here.
We campaign for justice, protection and compensation for all women and girls who have suffered sexual, domestic and/or racist violence.
This includes survivors of any age, race and nationality, asylum seekers, women with disabilities, trans women and sex workers.
We have won changes in the law such as making rape in marriage a crime.
We have set legal precedents such as the first private prosecution for rape, after the authorities refused to bring a rapist of two sex workers to court.
We thank our funders:
And, all the kind individuals who help keep us going.
We work closely with:
WinVisible– Women with visible and invisible disabilities
We are a member of the Support Not Separation Coalition & Global Women Against Deportations.
At the beginning of 2021, Black Women’s Rape Action Project combined forces with WAR as our perspectives and work methods are as one. We have now completed this merger bringing together two organisations with years of experience.
